Calbright College is the newest California Community College. We’re completely online and serve the entire State of California. Calbright is not yet accredited, and all Job Training Programs are offered non-credit. Learn more about accreditation at Calbright College.

Admission is open to all California residents. Residents whose immigration status may prevent them from becoming employed may not be eligible for apprenticeship and/or job placement services and opportunities. To learn more, email [email protected].
